Lebron James sets new record as he becomes NBA’s all-time leading scorer.

By surpassing Kareem Abdul-all-time Jabbar’s scoring mark, LeBron James has solidified his position as one of the most dominant NBA players in history.

With 10.9 seconds left in the third quarter on Tuesday night, the 38-year-old surpassed Kareem Abdul-record Jabbar’s of 38,387 points with a step-back fadeaway jumper from the foul line over the Oklahoma City Thunder’s Kenrich Williams.

Abdul-Jabbar played in 1,560 games to reach his total, whereas James did so in slightly more than 1,400.

Michael Jordan averages 30.1 points per game, which is the most in NBA history. James is barely behind another active player, Kevin Durant, in fifth place on that list with 27.1. (27.3).

The game was paused after James’ record-breaking shot for an on-court ceremony with Abdul-Jabbar and NBA commissioner Adam Silver.

“I just want to say, thank you to the Laker faithful. You guys are one of a kind,” James said.

“To be able to be in the presence of such a legend as great as Kareem, it’s very humbling. Please give a standing ovation to the Captain, please.”

James went on to thank his family and those who have supported him.

“I thank you guys so much for allowing me to be a part of something I’ve always dreamed about,” he added

“We mourn the passing of former NBA All-Star and head coach Paul Silas,” Adam Silver said in a statement. “Paul’s lasting contributions to the game are seen through the many players and coaches he inspired, including his son, Rockets head coach Stephen Silas. We send our deepest condolences to Paul’s family.”




As a player, Silas began his career in 1964 and played for several teams over the next two decades before retiring in 1980. He made two All-Star teams, in 1972 and 1975, and won three NBA championships during the 1970s.

Following his playing career, Silas spent decades coaching throughout the league. He last led the Charlotte Bobcats from 2010-12. Michael Jordan, who serves as the Charlotte Hornets Chairman, also mourned Silas in a statement released Sunday.

“Our Hornets family mourns the passing of Paul Silas,” Jordan wrote. “Paul was an incredible leader and motivator who served as our head coach on two occasions. He combined the knowledge developed over nearly 40 years as an NBA player and coach with an innate understanding on how to mix discipline with his never-ending positivity.”

“On or off the court, Paul’s enthusiastic and engaging personality was accompanied by an anecdote for every occasion. He was one of the all-time great people in our game, and he will be missed,” Jordan further added. “My thoughts, and the thoughts of our entire organization, are with his wife, Carolyn; his children, Paul and Stephen; and the entire Silas family.”

The Break: Nike unveils The Serena Williams Building.


When Serena Williams was young, she visited the Nike campus in Beaverton, Oregon. She came away from the trip feeling inspired—not just by the cool tech and cutting-edge athlete research, but even by the buildings themselves.

Sports greats including LeBron James, John McEnroe, Pete Sampras, Michael Jordan, Mia Hamm, Tiger Woods and more have been honored by Nike over the years, with their names adorning buildings throughout the sprawling campus.

Now, the 23-time Grand Slam winner and former world No. 1 has become the latest icon to join the coveted list, as Nike has announced the completion of the new Serena Williams Building.




“The whole building takes your breath away. Every element, everywhere you go, is an opportunity to be inspired,” Serena said in a statement. “I hope this building encourages people to bring out the best of themselves and to dream bigger than they thought possible.”

Bigger is definitely the key word for the Serena Williams Building: at one million square feet, the equivalent of 140 tennis courts, it’s definitely the largest office building at Nike World Headquarters to date. The structure houses world-class labs for product testing and development, showrooms, workspaces and more.

But the real highlights are the personal touches throughout, including a 140-seat Olympia Theater, named after Serena’s daughter, and an outdoor tennis court dubbed the “East Compton Hills Country Club”—a nod to the old Williams family joke of calling their local Compton courts a “country club”. White roses, one of Serena’s favorites, are planted throughout the main plaza.

More on Serena’s new Nike building, including an aerial view of the sprawling space, on this edition of The Break:




Roman Reigns make a comparison to Michael Jordan.


Roman Reigns is in the middle of an unbelievable run as WWE Universal Champion as he’s been the title holder for over 500 days.

He is slated to meet WWE Champion Brock Lesnar in a title unification match at WrestleMania 38 next Sunday. While speaking on The Michael Kay Show to promote the show, Reigns made a comparison to NBA Legend Michael Jordan as they both have to motivate themselves to greatness.

“Oh, of course, I absolutely respect him, but in this sense, when it goes to one v one, hand on hand, you got to have some hate. Whether it’s to the core or not you have to you know, like Michael Jordan, I have to like personally motivate myself and grasp on to anything I can to take myself to that main event energy to that main event level to that championship defense mode. God mode, if you will.

So yeah, there’s gonna be a lot of respect for many different reasons. Who he is as a performer, as an athlete. The history that we have, the way it’s affected me and my career, the way it’s changed my mindset, the things that I’ve learned, the things that I’ve done wrong, and how I’ve corrected those things. There’s so many things to be grateful for within my interactions with Brock, especially this one that’s coming up at WrestleMania when I beat them, and I solidify this run as the greatest Universal Champion of all time.”


Jordan’s departure from Chicago Bull ‘Bad omen for Barca’ Messi might leave


It’s difficult to find a player that is as important to their club as Lionel Messi is to Barcelona.

That’s why, when their relationship comes to an end sooner or later, it’s not easy to gage the impact that his exit will have on the Blaugrana.

One comparison we can make is that of Michael Jordan, whose departure rocked the Chicago Bulls.

Jordan left the Bulls in 1998 after winning his sixth NBA ring and, curiously, Messi could leave Barcelona after receiving his sixth Ballon d’Or.

In what is a bad omen for Barcelona, the Bulls haven’t won a single title since Jordan left in 1998.

Furthermore, MJ’s exit sparked a major revolution of the team, with coach Phil Jackson and iconic players like Scottie Pippen and Dennis Rodman also departing.


A similar changing of the guard could take place at the Camp Nou as Ronald Koeman attempts to move the likes of Luis Suarez on this summer.

Another interesting parallel between the two cases is that Barcelona and the Bulls both suffered from financial problems.

This year, the Catalan club have faced the brunt of the coronavirus pandemic, which shut down the season for three months, while the Bulls were involved in the NBA lockout of 1998 to 1999.

On a marketing level, Jordan has left a lasting legacy – he’s still the player with the most shirt sales for the Bulls.

As for Messi, Barcelona could be losing out big time if he and is marketing value were allowed to leave the club.

What is for sure is that Messi leaving will not spell the end for Barcelona, who were a hugely successful club before he arrived.

However, it’s hard to imagine the Blaugrana without their franchise player as uncertainty over their future grows by the day.

Michael Jordan mourns on Floyd’s death

Michael Jordan has released a statement on the death of George Floyd, condemning “ingrained racism” in the United States.


“I am deeply saddened, truly pained and plain angry,” wrote Jordan in a statement posted by the Charlotte Hornets, the NBA team he owns. “I stand with those who are calling out the ingrained racism and violence toward people of color in our country. We have had enough.”

Jordan has often been criticized for his reluctance to speak up on political matters, especially when compared to the activism of other NBA stars such as LeBron James and Guardian columnist Kareem Abdul-Jabbar. During a 1990 Senate race in his home state of North Carolina, Jordan refused to endorse Democrat Harvey Gantt, an African American who was running against the incumbent Republican Jesse Helms, a notorious racist.


Jordan, who at the time had already won the first of his five NBA MVP awards, explained away his refusal to take a stance by saying: “Republicans buy sneakers, too.”

Jordan has since insisted the comment was made in jest.

The six-time NBA champion, widely considered the greatest basketball player of all time, said on Sunday that Americans needed to work together to find answers to the country’s problems.


“I don’t have answers, but our collective voices show strength and the inability to be divided by others. We must listen to each other, show compassion and empathy and never turn out backs on senseless brutality,” he wrote.

If I were Donald Trump’s speechwriter, this is the team talk I would suggest
Curfews were in place in more than a dozen US cities on Sunday and Jordan urged people to protest peacefully. “We need to continue peaceful expressions against injustice and demand accountability,” he wrote.


Jordan finished his statement by expressing his sympathy to the family of Floyd and others. “My heart goes out to the family of George Floyd and to the countless others whose lives have been brutally and senselessly taken through acts of racism and injustice,” he wrote.

The former Chicago Bulls star has been in the news lately due to the popularity of The Last Dance, a documentary telling the story of his final championship season.
